ok you guys know that I think I met someone with one of Ben's puppies, since the rescue that we got Ben from said that he was dropped at the shelter with a female and they were suspected of being a breeding pair this is quite possible and he is a spitting image of Ben and has some of the same health issues.

I have been in touch with Max's mom and sent her Ben's F3 green algae and his new ear cleaner pads, and new eye cleaner pads etc. so sad to have gotten those just before he died still unopened :((

Anyway she wrote tonight and said that Max is almost totally blind now due to the diabetes being out of control and he may need to go to NC state for an MRI he is so sick, I feel so horrible for her as she is doing exactly what we did right after we adopted Ben, she adopted Max and has not been out of the vet's office since......she is seeing specialist after specialist etc.

Anyway wanted to let you guys know Ben's puppy needs lots of good thoughts sent his way, I don't feel that he will be with us that much longer......just a feeling but so sad.....

Oh wow Kate you aren't kidding, poor Max I got an update a few days ago he is almost totally blind now due to the diabetes out of control and she is ready to take him for tests down to NC state, I wish there was more I could do for him, I am trying to help her financially with him as much as possible but I know it's not enough......it's funny how you can see so many rotties and see bits and pieces of Ben in all of them - their eyes, their grin, the hair, etc. and be reminded of him, BUT Max wow Max was amazing and in my gut even before I did the math I knew he was Ben's puppy.....I JUST KNEW......I trust my intuition on things like this and I know Ben would be happy to know I recognized his offspring instantly......I don't know if I posted their pics but here they are:

     

It blew me away and even if Max isn't Ben's puppy I am helping a rottie in need and that's what matters.....Ben would have been 6 when Max was born and Ben was dropped at the shelter right at 6 years old and was in rescue for 9 months before we adopted him at 7 years old, knowing the shelter said he came in with a female that they suspected they were a breeding pair, Max taken from the same shelter, same area, etc. etc. it's just too much coincidence to not have some meaning......

 

oh Ben is on the right
